Hi guys,

Just started DROS on a M&P 9, and I cannot find a vendor who has the 10 rd magazines in stock.

On the other hand, ExileMachine has a ton of 17rd rebuilds at a good price.

How hard is it to make a 10/17 mag? I mean, is it AR simple? (cut appropriate-diameter dowel to right length, stick in mag, epoxy baseplate so it's permanent)

Just wondering if anyone has experience with this. I know a lot of guys who make their own 10/20 or 10/30 rifle magazines, I don't really hear about 10/XX pistol mags though.

I personally have not done it myself. But I've read it's the same as you have mentioned. Just measure the 10 rnds. And cut the dowels etc.... Should be the same.
